Like many other good things in life, Monki originates from Sweden. The brand has established a storefront in Harajuku, on none other than the busy, crepe-scented Takeshita-dori. Now, we realise this means braving tourist crowds and shrieking schoolgirls, but here’s why it’s worth it. You can pick up an entire look (accessories included) for less than ¥10,000. The prints are loud, the skirts are short and the blouses oversized, and their accessories collection features Japan-only items and lots of cat-eared hats and velvet sandals. The denim section is worth a browse, as they have every style under the sun with pricing around ¥5,000 to ¥6,000. Just like its decor, the clothes are playful and bright, fitting right in to the heart of Harajuku.
